Hold onto your hats because you’re about to be blown away by the incredible life story of Steve Pullen, former Australian Ironman Champion. Our newest episode of Pure Grit offers an emotional, inspiring rollercoaster ride that you don’t want to miss!

Steve’s journey began as an unstoppable young athlete who rocketed to fame in the Uncle Toby’s Iron Man and Nutri Grain Iron Man series. At just 23, he claimed the title of Australian Ironman Champion—a feat many athletes only dream of. But it wasn’t just his physical strength that won him titles; it was also his indomitable willpower.

Then life threw him a curveball. At age 38, Steve was diagnosed with the exceedingly rare Poems Syndrome. The prognosis? A mere 2 years to live. Instead of spiraling into despair, Steve strapped on his racing speedos and took on the most critical race of his life: the race against time.

Today, he’s not just a survivor; he’s a warrior. A business owner, a father, and above all, a lesson in never giving up, Steve’s journey serves as an awe-inspiring testament to human resilience. In this in-depth interview, we delve into Steve’s life before and after the diagnosis, his fights, his fears, and the determination that fueled his survival.

Prepare to be inspired. Prepare to reevaluate what you know about strength, courage, and the sheer will to live. This isn’t just a story; this is a lesson for us all. Steve Pullen is Pure Grit personified.
